March 19. /TASS/. There are two possible versions of the plane crash in southern Russia: a piloting error due to bad weather conditions or a technical disorder, investigators said Saturday.
The Interstate Aviation Committee has organized an investigation commission, which unites experts in aviation accidents. The commission is working already.
The сommittee said that experts from several countries would join it in the probe into the crash.
"Experts from the United Arab Emirates, where the plane was registered and exploited, from the U.S. - where the plane was designed and made, and from France - where the engines were designed - will join the investigation commission soon," the Committee said in a statement.
On Saturday morning, at 3:42 Moscow time, FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800 crashed at the airport in Russia’s southern Rostov-on-Don during the second circle on landing in complicated weather conditions (strong side wind and rain). The plane was serving a flight from Dubai. It was carrying 62 people. The preliminary information is that nobody survived the crash. Russia's president and prime minister have offered their condolences to the families of the victims.
